Asian Broth with Poached Chicken and Noodles

13 Feb


This is such a quick and easy dish that produces a amazingly soothing broth that is just brimming with oriental flavor. It would be the perfect meal if you were sick. Also I think it is so easy that you could probably make it for yourself if you were sick, although it always seems so much better when someone makes it for you, right? The only thing to watch out for in this one is the ginger and garlic. It does give an amaing flavor to the broth but its not so nice if you chow down onto a whole piece of it! In my opinion though it is a small price to pay for an awesome meal.


Asian Broth with Poached Chicken and Noodles (Serves 2)

500ml chicken stock

2 small chunks of peeled ginger, bashed

3 cloves of garlic, bashed

2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced

1 spring onion, thinly sliced on the diagonal

1/2 red chilli, finely chopped

1tsp fish sauce

1tsp honey

juice of 1/2 lime

2 nests of fine egg noodles, cooked according to packet instructions

1/2tsp dried coriander

1/2tsp dried mint

salt and pepper

  • Boil the chicken stock in a medium saucepan and add the ginger, garlic and chicken strips.
  • Simmer for about 5mins then add the spring onion, chilli, fish sauce, honey and lime juice and simmer for a further 3mins.
  • Finally, add the coriander and mint and season to taste.
  • Ladle over the noodles and prepare to be relaxed!
